You may know Mark and Penny from their previous successful business, Mark Laughton Motors and AA Auto Centre, which they ran for 14 years. Over that time, they built a solid reputation for exceptional customer service which allowed them to transition seamlessly from being Dunedin’s trusted motor people to the reliable real estate consultants they are today. With valuable life skills under their belt, Mark and Penny tackle the complex and ever-changing property market with efficiency and expertise.
The Laughton’s property credentials extend beyond their working life, too. They’ve built three new homes, owned rental properties and enjoyed many family homes together. They fully apprehend the emotions involved in buying, building and selling real estate, and they provide confidential professional advice tailored to your property goals.
The Laughtons love everything Dunedin has to offer and enjoy a family lifestyle here: they’ve been married for 23 years and have two teenage children. You’ll often find them participating in community and charity events — they’re proud sponsors and volunteers with the Malcam Trust, the Special Olympics, Musical Theatre Dunedin and Chat Bus, while Mark is a founding member and chairman of the Dunedin Santa Parade, which they’ve successfully run for 18 years.

A passionate sales consultant, Emma is also a tech whiz, marketing expert and breath of fresh air in the industry. A huge strength to Team Laughton, she helps the team deliver the ultimate experience for you.
